Description of this Book

Meet 30 men who create an alternative story of heroism in history. From people of peace, like the Dalai Lama, to artists like David Hockney, musicians like David Bowie, poets like Kit Yan, and teachers like Jaime Escalante - all are talented and diverse. These men have fought conventional stereotypes to prove that modern day masculinity can be cool - and defined freely. Role models hand-picked to inspire a new, modern generation of boys.
